SoCalGas Hydrostatic Pressure Testing on Victoria St.

September-November 2015

Beginning Monday, September 14, 2015 Southern California Gas Company will be conducting hydrostatic pressure testing of its natural gas pipelines along Victoria Street at the intersection of Victoria Street and Central Avenue that will result in lane closures through November (updated from an expected completion date of the end of October).

The testing is the final phase of its state-mandated natural gas pipeline replacement project that begin last year along Victoria. The testing is required before the new pipelines are put into service. SoCalGas officials have assured campus officials that this technique is safe, but if anyone has concerns can call 1-(800) 427-2200.

For more information about hydrostatic pressure testing, visit the SoCalGas website.

Campus Traffic Mitigations:

University Police and Parking Services are working closely with SoCalGas to mitigate the impacts to campus, especially around the start of the semester; however, heavy traffic congestion is expected.

Students, faculty, staff and visitors are strongly advised to consider alternative routes to campus via Avalon and allow for additional time when coming to campus.
